    enable scripted windows in ie7 through gpo

    We have a page on our intranet that uses a bit of crappy script, and IE7 always pops up with the security bar at the top the user has to click on before the script will run.

    Is there any way via GPO to allow scripts to be run for this specific site?

    cant you set IE settings in GPO somewhere. to say things like what to allow for intranet sites, what security level, whether to run activex etc?

    granted

    try in
    user config>admin templates>windows components>internet explorer

    and have a look around there. if not, also take a peek at
    user config>windows settings>internet explorer maintenance

    You can, but it can be flaky sometimes. The section you are after is called IE Maintenance.

    OK Ive found out the bit i need to enable to get what I'm trying to do working.

    On the local machine, I can either add my site to the trusted sites list, and it works, or I can enable the setting "allow websites to prompt for information using scripted windows"

    I have tried adding my site to the trusted sites in GPO, but it isn't picked up by the machines (even though all other ie7 gpo things are)

    And also i cant find anywhere in the ie7 gpo an option to enable "allow websites to prompt for information using scripted windows"

    Any ideas how I can either force my site to be into the trusted sites list on all machines, or how I can enable that setting ?
